Workshop Feature: Tumor-Agnostic Cancer Therapies

November 2019

On November 14th, Harvard-MIT CRS faculty Spencer Hey and Aaron Kesselheim hosted a workshop on ethical and regulatory challenges arising from the testing and approval of new tumor-agnostic cancer therapies. This event brought together experts from the FDA, the NCI, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Memorial Sloan Kettering to discuss the implications of these and similar biomarker-targeting treatments have for research, regulation, and care. Following the workshop, there was a public panel co-hosted with the Harvard Center for Bioethics’ Health Policy and Research Ethics Consortia.
